In the video for the third single off Arcade Fire’s latest album Reflektor, you get to see Spidey like you’ve never seen him before.
By Spidey we mean Amazing Spiderman 2 star Andrew Garfield, and by never before, we mean in complete drag – blonde wig, hotpants and high heels. Directed by David Wilson (and partly filmed during Arcade Fire’s Coachella performance this year), the video is a perfect complement to singer Win Bulter’s song lyrics “about a gay kid talking to his dad” for the first time about coming out. We Exist is clearly about supporting gay rights and, overall, a pretty touching and empowering anthem with a strong message of equality.
Also, who know Garfield was an amazing dancer – check out his Flashdance-like moves during a semi-hallucinatory moment towards the end (the rednecks that join in actually do a decent job too). Another reminder why Reflektor topped the charts in over 40 countries.
